Westport Arts Center (The)


The Westport Arts Center offers a wide array of programming for children ages 2-18. Workshops and classes emphasize process over product lessons that help to build a strong foundation in visual arts technique while also promoting self-expression and creativity. Programs include weekday and weekend workshops, toddler and pre-schooler classes, vacation day workshops and camps, homeschool opportunities, and guided tours.
